Like Anh and Chinh, front-line workers in Vietnam often ride motorbikes to help them take the gospel to more hard-to-reach places.
On Jan. 3, 17-year-old Anh and her father, Chinh, visited a village several miles away to pray for a family that had contracted the coronavirus.
Because of their Christian faith, local authorities forced them to pay a quarantine fee after they prayed for the sick family; non-Christians they spoke with didn’t have to pay a fee. As they drove home on their motorbike, people from the village attempted to stop and harass them. Eventually, one person swung a machete at the motorbike, slicing two tendons in Anh’s left leg. Her church helped cover much of Anh’s medical costs, but her family is struggling to pay for the rest. Pray that Anh fully heals from the injury and that the family she prayed for fully heals from any lasting complications.
